One of the very best kept secrets in Seattle is the Cedar Park neighborhood. Bordering on the western shores of Lake Washington and bordered by Matthews Beach to the south, 145th is the north border and 35th Avenue and Sand Point Way provide the west border for this 4 mile long wooded residential area.
The natural sloping Cedar Park topography offers many homes with great views of Lake Washington, Mount Baker and to the south Mount Rainier. Originally developed in the 1920s to the early 40s as vacation cottages, after 1945 the area developed into a single-family residential community with the bulk of the homes being built from 1950-1970.
The waterfront homes in Cedar Park are separated by the Burke Gilman trail that runs from Gas Works Park in Seattle to Redmond’s Marymoor Park. The Burke Gilman Trail was formerly a rail road line converted into a public trail in 1978.
Cedar Park is located close to the University of Washington, Lake City and the Northgate shopping area conveniently located to several freeway on and off ramps.
The currently inventory of homes for sale are priced from $299,000-$1,3 million.
